“Reader’s Bill of Rights”

I recently did a post on 9 ways to find more time to read and this week I found the following list that I think works well as a companion to my post.  I LOVE this list!  So often we feel we have to do all things perfectly and that includes reading.  As in what we read, how we read it and when we read it.  But I’m here to tell you that you can DO IT ANY WAY YOU WANT!

“Reader’s Bill of Rights”

1. The right to not read

2. The right to skip pages

3. The right to not finish

4. The right to reread

5. The right to read anything

6. The right to escapism

7. The right to read anywhere

8. The right to browse

9. The right to read out loud

10. The right to not defend your tastes”
― Daniel Pennac

So if you are feeling like reading a juicy romance novel while you soak in the tub – go for it!

If you keep thinking about Albert Einstein and wondering about his life – read his autobiography.

Don’t know what you want to read?  Take a few hours in your local library or Barnes & Noble store (complete with a Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks) to wonder around and get lost in the land of books.  Who knows – you may find a new passion or interest!
